    I have the Goliat storage and it is great for a bedside table or other light storage but it is NOT very sturdy at all. I don’t recommend sitting on it.

  3. Well I do agree with some of the above comments that it seems to be very uncomfortable design..
    It has only be a drawer or only be a bench.

    Seems very unsafe, impractical, and unusable for the purpose of sitting.
